This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    When we discovered this amazing plant at one of the plant fairs we just had to have it! It produces masses of flowers just like the much-loved climbing form, but it grows as a relatively compact shrub, which lends itself particularly well to patio pots. The flowers have a deliciously sweet perfume and will appear over a long period from midsummer onwards - and they are loved by bees and butterflies.

  • Garden care: Cut back established plants after flowering, removing a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
